>Because as far as I can see, these should be identical. The difference:

archive != object file for the linker. Again, you have misordered your 
command line, there is no object file listed in front of the libraries, so 
no need for the linker to extract anything from the libraries cause there 
is no consumer (yet). Try:

$ g++ pgsqlbackend.o -L/opt/postgresql/lib -lssl -lcrypt 
-lcrypto  -Wl,-Bstatic -lpq++ -lpq -Wl,-Bdynamic -Wl,-soname 
-Wl, -shared -o

BTW, this is quite off-topic here, these are linker basics that have 
nothing to do with binutils in particular.
